Synopsis
=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D

Gentoo's GIMPS ebuilds are vulnerable to privilege escalation due to
improper permissions. A local attacker could use it to gain root
privileges.

Background
=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D

GIMPS, the Great Internet Mersenne Prime Search, is a software capable
of find Mersenne Primes, which are used in cryptography. GIMPS is also
used for hardware testing.

Affected packages
=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D

-------------------------------------------------------------------
Package / Vulnerable / Unaffected
-------------------------------------------------------------------
1 sci-mathematics/gimps < 28.10-r1 >=3D
28.10-r1=20

Description
=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D

It was discovered that Gentoo=E2=80=99s default GIMPS installation suffered
from a privilege escalation vulnerability in the init script. This
script calls an unsafe "chown -R" command in checkconfig() function.

Impact
=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D

A local attacker who does not belong to the root group, but has the
ability to modify the /var/lib/gimps directory can escalate privileges
to the root group.

Workaround
=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution
=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D

All GIMPS users should upgrade to the latest version:

# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose
">=3Dsci-mathematics/gimps-28.10-r1"
